A Vancouver Island restaurant has decided that it will not be accepting tips.

Smoke 'N Water, which opens next month, will not accept tips, according to the National Post.

The items will cost about 18% more than other comparable restaurants. This will allow the owner,  David Jones, to pay his wait staff $20-$24 an hour and his cooks $16-$18.
